The Baylor University Wind Ensemble will present its first concert of the year at

7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, in Jones Concert Hall. New music director, Kevin Sedatole, will serve as director.

Sedatole holds both the doctor of musical arts degree and master of music degree from The University of Texas at Austin. He earned his bachelor of music degree from Baylor in 1985. He is the former director of The University of Texas Longhorn Band and associate director of bands. Sedatole also was associate director of bands at the University of Michigan and served on the music faculty of Stephen F. Austin State University, where he was associate director of bands.

For his inaugural concert, Sedatole has selected a program that includes Hector Berlioz's colorful Roman Carnival Overture, two familiar works by Percy Grainger ("Irish Tune from County Derry" and "Molly on the Shore"), Gustav Holst's First Suite for Band, the southwestern premiere of Driven! by Kenneth Amis, and Donald Grantham's Southern Harmony.

The Baylor Wind Ensemble is comprised of 60 of the university musicians from nine states and four foreign countries.

This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
